Next minor milestone done: deck fiberglassed, sanded and washed. The 10 oz fabric laid down well on the flat parts, not as easy on the corners but got it done. Now that it's sanded it's so nearly flat that I tried going straight to Quikfair on one of the gunnels and it turned out real nice. I'll go ahead on do that on the whole deck, which will save me the usual step of fairing mix/sanding before the Quikfair. Getting there.

Appreciate the kind words, guys.

Glenn, let me know when you want to come by. Over the next bit I'll be out 2/16-19, but here otherwise.

Great looking boat, love the deck lighting. Can't wait to see how the rest of it comes together.
Alan.

Some more progress. The glass faired out.

Three coats of System Three yacht primer.

Three coats of EMC Whisper Grey. This paint is very easy to use, goes a long way and looks good. I used foam rollers and applied the coats within a no-sand window.

Next is the Tessilmare rub rail and some wiring wrap up and other minor things, then get the motor installed. If I get this done over the next few month or so I'll be right at the 4 year mark when I launch.
